I am not at all an expert on systemd's cgroups, however I do know the
basic design of cgmanager. cgmanager provides cgroups to containers
via a "cgproxy" service that relays messages to the main cgmanager
service. You can read more about it here:
https://github.com/cgmanager/cgmanager/blob/master/README. Perhaps
systemd can use a similar model.
